What is Harkon Protector?

You might have seen these announcements going off every two hours or so, and may be wondering "what does this mean and how do I participate?"

Well;

Quote

This is a reoccurring event for groups of tricksters where each trickster talks to Eclipse (using Mind's Eye), at a specific time to enter into a special room (Shadow Sanctuary) where you protect Harkon Statues from shadow monster attacks.

For 20 minutes the tricksters must protect 5 statues from waves of monster attacks. If the tricksters succeed, they are awarded, if they fail, they get nothing*. The hint to succeed is coordination.

(ggFTW, Harkon Protector)

*Not entirely true. I will elaborate on the rewards later on in this thread!

Harkon Protector is an event that strongly relies on teamwork and good communication. We actively use the LifeTO Discord to communicate with each other, and reminders are posted whenever the next Sanctuary is about to open / is opened. We are usually on Voice Chat, since all-chat does not reach across the whole map. 

 

If you are currently working on your guardian, here are some useful guides:

- General Guardian FAQ by Almora

- Card Identification Quests Guide

- Nessie's Guide to Guardians by Nessie

 

What is Mind's Eye?

7ZRbBpi.png 

Mind's Eye is a skill that is only obtainable for those who have their guardians (Lv. 180+). If you would like to participate in Harkon Protector, this skill is a necessity, as the Shadow NPCs are only visible when the skill is used.

This means that only Enlightened players are able to enter the Shadow World realms.

The skill also enables Enlightened players to see monsters from the Shadow World. Players without the skill will not be able to see/attack Shadow Monsters* freely.

 

How do I obtain Mind's Eye?

After hatching your guardian, talk to Eclipse at the Garden of Skill Master in Megalopolis.

She will ask for x1 BviMXyQ.png P. Anemone Card and your XsVnPjP.gif Dimensional Key (don't worry, she won't take the one that teleports you to Megalopolis!)

Completed the quest? Ta-daa, you should have Bf33sSA.jpg Mind's Eye now!

qgl9RHh.png 

Now that you have Mind's Eye, you now meet the requirements to enter the Shadow Sanctuaries!

 

What are Shadow Monsters?*

They are stronger and much higher levelled than ordinary monsters. They are visibly translucent, as opposed to normal monsters being fully opaque.

Here is an example of a Shadow Monster after I used Mind's Eye. Normal Pochis are Lv. 35.

Do I need anything else?

You might be wondering if there is anything else you might need that can aid you in these events. I have compiled a list of things you might find useful:

  • tNHVdGx.gif Resurrect Scroll; self-explanatory - these scrolls allow users to resurrect after fainted. They can be bought from the Megalopolis Shop via Item Girl for 50k galders each.
  • O8S9Y8B.png Scroll of Rejuvenation; these scrolls heal nearby players 50% of their health, and also heals yourself. They can be bought from MyShop under Use > Scroll on Page 3. They cost 50Pts for a pack of 10 (equivalent to 5k galders per scroll).
  • x9ugTqD.png Scroll of the Resolute; these scrolls prevent users from fainting once for 5 minutes. If the scroll succeeds in preventing faint, your HP will be at 1, and you will have to re-use the scroll again to prevent your next faint. They can be bought from MyShop under Use > Scroll on Page 3. They cost 50Pts for a pack of 5 (equivalent to 10k galders per scroll).
  • LOTS of HP/MP pots recommended! Personally, I stack up on WwwmEOP.gif Hyperium Blue Potions. They restore 3500 MP, weigh 1 each and cost 200Pts for a stack of 100 (equivalent to 2k galders per pot). The b6D1VqN.gif Hyperium Pink Potions are the same, except they restore 4000 HP.

Harkon Protector currently occurs 8 times a day, every 2 hours and lasts for 20 minutes each event. Our server timezone is EDT & our Harkon Protector times differ from other servers.Since I am from the UK, I have decided to include my timezone too (BST).

Eclipse only appears during the times listed below and included images of the mini-map of where Eclipse should be at these times also.

Only the first 30 players will be able to enter the map (equivalent to 5 full parties - one at each statue).

At the moment, we are averaging about 10+/- players per Sanctuary! Our busiest sanctuaries are Tapasco ~ Caballa Relics.

Eclipse disappears after successfully defending the statues, or if a statue breaks within the 20 minutes of the event.

The Shadow World will then close, until the next Sanctuary opens!

There are three different modes of Harkon Protector. Players will not know which mode they are defending against until they enter the Shadow Sanctuary. There are a few things that help players distinguish which mode it is before monsters appear on screen, such as the text shown before the monsters appear.

The assault will begin in 90 seconds!

When the battle starts the monster will appear and begin to attack the Harkon statues.

Please protect the Harkon!

You can reveal shadow monsters using the Mind's Eye skill

Please defeat the monsters and prevent the Harkon from being destroyed!

The Sense monsters' assault has begun!

Shadow Monsters that appear during the:

1st Assault

There are 8 waves of attacks, each wave lasting 40 seconds long with different sequences.

Note: Although Charybdis of Sense are Magic Weak, you will need at least 400 LK as a mage to successfully kill these without missing. 

Focus on these! They like to sneak behind walls and hide in the corners, whilst attacking Harkon statues at the same time. They also use thPW4mN.jpg Armor Desctructor on the Harkon Statues, so that the statues take on more damage, thus breaking quicker.

OxuDmrX.gif 

Werepot Ghost - Lv. 200, ??? ~ These lil things do no damage to the actual Harkons. They are just here to faint you all! Feel free to dodge them or kill them. All they do is explode and try to faint you immediately.

You sense the dark aura that is aiming for the Harkon!

The real battle is about to start!

Please Protect the Harkon. Shadow World Monsters can be seen with Mind's Eye.

Warning! Protect the Harkon!

Let's start the fun!

Shadow Monsters that appear during the:

1st Assault

This consist in two waves of attacks of boss monster mobs.

Charm_Icon.gif Gorgon  - Lv. 675, Gun, Magic, Dark Weak 25% / Fire and Light Weak 45%, Physical & Electric Resist 

They can use qUtW1aM.jpg Entrancing Wink. Since Harkon Protector is full of mages, this would mean that a lot of the players within the Shadow Sanctuary may not be able to do anything until the skill wears off. However, they do the least damage out of the other 4.

JXbGW4k.gif 

Sense_Icon.gif Charybdis - Lv. 684, Physical, Air, Light Weak 25%, Dark & Magic Resist

[PRIORITY] These guys still like to hide in the corners & use thPW4mN.jpg Armor Destructor on Harkon Statues, even in Boss Mode. Kill them, before they sneakily break the Harkon!

OxuDmrX.gif

Power_Icon.gif Scylla - Lv. 693, Physical Weak 45%, Gun Weak 25%, Magic Resist (!!!) - A MAGE'S TRUE ENEMY.

~ Emphasis on Magic Resist! Mages do 1 or 0 damage to them in Boss Mode. However, if you use the Shard of Glacier + Electric Skill combo, you can kill them very easily as a magic type.

Focus on these as they hurt a A LOT! At low health, they can also use mxI3qqb.jpg Beserker. ~ They can even kill Ray...

NES5gGy.gif

Magic_Icon.gif Hecate - Lv. 702, Magic, Gun Weak 25%, Physical Resist ~ Honestly, watch out for the Dark Barrier!!!!

Yes, they like to use 9oaiUrC.jpg Dark Barrier. So, it is advised to kill them before they cast it, otherwise all the Charm & Power Types will struggle.

Feel free to ask any questions below! I shall add them here if I think it might be a common question.

 

Q: What is 'Blocking'? I hear this term at a lot of Harkon Protector events?

A: This is when a player enters the Shadow Sanctuary, and stands by a Harkon Statue without refreshing Mind's Eye. Monsters will still hurry towards the statue, however, they will not attack the statue when a player uses their character as a 'blocker'. This means that players within the Sanctuary will have one less statue to focus on. 

However, this does not always work.

Blocking is most effective during Gloom Mode, with the blocker stationed at Statue 3, as Statue 3 (arguably) spawns the most monsters during this mode. If there is more than one blocker, the secondary blocker is usually stationed at Statue 4, as it also spawns a lot of monsters in Gloom Mode.

Yes, blocking could be considered as a bug, as it allows players within the Sanctuary to 'win' more easily, hence why some players do not like to use this method. They consider it as cheating. Despite this, players have used this method since eTO, and some may consider it as a secret 'game feature' instead, as the Developers of the official game never bothered to "fix" it.

Blocked monsters must not be killed, as it messes with the spawns and makes monsters aggro, thus making them use their skills to attack the Harkon and other nearby players. Some monsters do get past and manage to get to the Blocked Harkon Statue, so blocked statues will have to be checked regularly by a non-blocker. Please refrain from using AoE skills when killing the monsters that get past. Use single-targeted skills, such as, Arrow Rush instead. :heartt:

 

Q: Why am I being yelled at for OHKOing (Shade of) Chronos?

A: As mentioned above under 'Rewards'

Ultra Rare Drops

Vl07xSj.gif Chronos Shard

Note: Chronos Shard does not actually 'drop' like the other shards do. In order to have a chance of getting the Chronos Shard, players must have hit Chronos at least once before he is defeated.

When Chronos spawns, it is strongly advised to not kill him immediately. Please allow others within the map to at least attack him once before defeating him. Only the players that manage to land an attack on him has a chance of obtaining the Chronos Shard. So, if you solo him, no one else will have that chance. Please be fair!

Awesome guide, thank you for taking the time to write it out!  Quick question though, which element is objectively the most effective for a buffalo at Harkon?  I realize mixing AoEs is best, but, what attribute should be focused on the most?

*you won't struggle with killing the mobs as much in the other two modes, so that's why i've chosen to talk about boss mode

@Serushi yeah, a mix of AoE is great, however as for the most effective element --

despite the fact that gorgons are physical resist, they are 45% fire weak in boss mode*. i'd strongly recommend getting XjFU9Yq.gif fire attribute for harkon. it'll honestly help out so much! you might not be able to OHKO them without it. the only down side is that you'll have to whack the mobs rather than AoE though...

as for AoE skills, i'd recommend alDO6Rt.jpg tempest strike. so, you'll need some z8jiLtM.gif wind attribute to do decent damage. yeah, it's a skill based on RNG, but it's at least a very quick AoE and can do a loooot of damage too.

z4x8tLO.jpg earthquake blade is extremely slow but does some hefty damage. in harkon, we need to kill things pretty quickly, especially when it gets super busy, so i'd limit the use of this skill. a sheep could easily use GS2OOul.jpg wind blade whilst you're still casting, which could get pretty annoying... so yeah, opt for quicker skills such as this tempest, or alternatively, just melee them.

hope this helps! :)

It definitely does help, I appreciate it very much!  Thanks again!
